In my opinion it will be much easier if you insert individual Orders and
Here's a hurriedly put together example to help you think in terms of rules
(I have no experience of your problem domain so this might be laughably
Global ArrayList branch1;
rule "Delievery split - Branch 1"
$p : Product( $b : branch = "Branch 1" )
$o : Order( products contains $p )
OrderDelievery od = new OrderDelievery($o, $p, $b);
rule "Consolidate delieveries"
$od : OrderDelievery( branch = "Branch 1" )
Or you could just retrieve the OrderDelievery objects from WM at the end.
Drools can definately achieve what you want. If you can solve the problem
with hard-coded rules you can solve it with Drools.

alright. I was trying not to boder you.
My companie is developing a billing software for a e-commerce site. So we
have an Order and we have to transform it into deliveries. So each Order has
many products and I have to filter it and define X deliveries(i call it
'delivery split'). There are filters like disponibility(in how many days it
will be ok), brach(in what city is the product), type(if it is a kit,
I tried many ways and i really think that drools isn't the best tool for my
problem. The point is that mi boos dont want to use the hard code for define
the deliveries. He wats drolls to do everything. So i tried inserting the
the order in the WM, and using 'rom' chained with 'collect' i could
and set a list based in some rules, but how can i create lists based on the
branch. how can i group in Y different lists the Z different products i
I also inserted each product manually and tried to manipulate each one. But
the point is that the rules should be interdependent but i was not able to
the resume is that i want to take the order and set N deliveries based on
interdependent rules. i would like to do almost everything with drools not
using the hard code.
Sorry for the English, thanj you very much for the help, i'm a little lost.

Posted to forum for a wider audience.
I think you will need to be more specific with your use case.

I have a list of products and want to divide this list in other lists
applying the rules, than i want to apply the same rules to this new lists.
So I keep dividing them until no rules are applicable anymore.
